I’m not into shameless self promoting, but, you know, if you wanna check it out..I’d be okay with it..
Oliver rises slowly in an attempt to not disturb the soundly sleeping blonde next to him. Sitting up, he runs his hands over his face and glances at the peacefully oblivious woman in his bed. He really had planned on it not being at his house this time. He’d grown tired of the worried and disappointed looks Thea gave him every time he would slip out before they woke up. It really was the only thing he felt he could do. He wouldn’t remember her name, she’d be hurt and embarrassed, it never failed.
So he got up, slipped on some jeans and a white t-shirt and quietly made his way towards his door. He looked back at the girl one more time and sadly smiled. He hoped she’d find what she was looking for, it just wouldn’t be with him.
Oliver tip-toed through the apartment in hopes of avoiding Thea. He had almost made it to the door.
“I’m not doing this anymore, Oliver.” He turned to see his sister cross-armed, leaning against a pillar.
“Good morning Speedy. You know, that whole judgy thing you’re doing with your face is going to give you wrinkles.” He smiled and turned the doorknob.
“I’m serious. Do you even know the girl’s name? You don’t have to answer that. I know you don’t. But you know who will? Me. When she wakes up and you aren’t here, I’m going to know her name. I’ll probably have to see her cry. I’m am tired of watching women come in and out of this apartment. I know things have been hard and I can’t tell you what to do with your love life, but I can tell you what goes on here. So stop.”
Oliver scratched the back of his neck. Conversations like this were becoming a frequent thing with the people him. I can’t tell you what to do, but I’m going to tell you what to do. None of them really understood. He knew they just wanted to help. They wanted the old Oliver back. He was gone. They’d just have to deal with Ollie.
“Sorry sis, I’ll make sure to leave a note so you don’t have to talk to them next time.” He winked at her and headed out the door. He had to be at the foundry and he was already 30 minutes late.
